I have use this phone about 6 month nice phone and what fabulous cameras with portrait mode
It's a year I am using this phone.
Have had no issues whatsoever. I updated it to 8.1 (2nd update) and it's running smooth. I have no problem in terms of LED lights, power problem or anything.
It's cause of following things:
- only required apps downloaded apart from standard Google apps( WhatsApp, Truecaller,paytm, BB Hub service, MS office suite, Bank apps, Bhim app, Facebook apps). No extra baggage of unwanted free apps or games.
- never use my phone while it's charging.using original charger only.
- no games
With above things, I am enjoying a smooth and trouble free pure Android experience.

From thousands of reviews youtube videos, i bought MIA1 but now i regret it. Guys which is the best phone @ this same price category..? i want to throw it away this!!
nickrockp, 21 Jul 2018hahaha i didn't update to 8.1 because I saw the issues ppl are facing now with led notificati... moreNougat 7.1.2 update in October was the best update, after that each update solve few issues & bring in few issues.
Thought the april Oreo 8.0 update solved the GPS problem, which started since November 2017, it took Xiaomi 6 months to solved GPS tracking issue, it works on some network & doesn't work on some network.
Still i am getting weak & slow GPS now, but still usable, from Nov 2017 till April 2018 it was totally unusable.
Now i am having this isssue.
1.) LED notification light not blink when there is incoming message.
2.) 4G signal weak even in city centre (swap the sim to another phone signal strong & fast) so clearly MiA1 problem.
3.) Sometimes white tint appear at the bottom of the screen (especially when i use dark wallpaper)
4.) Weak volume thru ear phone (tested the ear phone on another phone no problem)
5.) Lost GPS signal once phone goes to 3G, the GPS only work on 4G.
hahaha i didn't update to 8.1 because I saw the issues ppl are facing now with led notification light etc, everyone is rushing to install and update which really doesn't change anything, just more bugs for u to worry about lol to make u buy another phone
Please add integretad screenshot function with next update i hate two button combo and bring back blinking notification led and please add like when you charging phone powered off led stops when phone is 100 charged to power on charging.
i noticed an issue with Oreo 8.1 July update (2nd edition), The white LED notification light no longer blink when there's a message, the LED notification just stay on, this problem when i have message come in while charging, as i can't tell when there a message.
Even when i not charging the phone, i would have miss the message as non blinking LED notification light will not catch any attention.
What's wrong with Xiaomi? making so many silly mistake on each update.
Oreo 8.1 cause battery to drain faster, usually i will have around 35% battery by end of the day, now i end up with 25%, tested for few days same result, SOT drop from 6hr to 5.5hr.
Another bad update.
Picture to picture features is not working on my Youtube App even after updating to Oreo 8.1
Just updated to 8.1.0 also. I love AndroidOne program. :) Guys from GsmArena, please update the phone description to include the newest Android version (8.1.0) available for the device.
zellax, 19 Jul 2018i have none of these issues.i have the low volume thru ear phone problem as well, need to increase the volume, but if i do that some hissing sound will appear, the white tinted screen appear once & gone after i restart the phone.
i too have network unusable issue & GPS disconnect issue, often i lost navigation guide due to this issue, now i only use my Samsung for Navigation as GPS is very important for me.
Most probably I'll replace MiA1 with Nokia 6.1 plus once it launch in my country.
Just updated to 8.1, Its an awesome update guys. No bugs, new launcher is superb although i use Nova launcher prime, everything is polished, looks very neat. Awesome job xiaomi. Exited for Android PepperMint.
